Comedian Yoon Hyung Bin “transformed” into Big Bang’s G-Dragon. For those who do not know who this comedian is, Yoon Hyung Bin plays the role of “Wang Biho,” also known as the sarcastic comedian who always talks smack about popular Korean celebrities in the final segment of KBS 2TV’s popular comedy show, “Gag Concert.”

In the most recent segment, Wang Biho, dressed up in the theme of G-Dragon’s newest album, Heartbreaker. Wang said, “Yeah, I know what you’re thinking, ‘is he supposed to be G-Dragon?'” which led the audience to be shocked but all burst in laughter when he said, “maybe Wang-Dragon?” Wang Biho started the laying the smack down by singing a line from Heartbreaker…

“나도 어디서든 꿀리진 않아 아직 쓸만한 걸 죽지 않았어”
“I don’t fall behind, I’m still useful, I haven’t died yet”

…but connected the verse with another line from an old traditional Korean song titled, “쾌지나칭칭나네, (Kwae Ji Na Ching Ching Na Nae) by Kim Do Kyuun”, which sounded oddly similar. The comedian then added, “Who said ‘Heartbreaker’ is similar to an American song? It’s more similar to a Korean song!”

SHU-I Finally Drops the Bomb Bomb Bomb!

shu-i

Finally some testosterone! Newbie kpop quintet SHU-I has finally released their full MV for their debut single “Bomb Bomb Bomb.” The boys are rocking it out in black and white in a futuristic and rather eccentric MV. Despite it’s title, the MV displays no such epic explosion and is rather bland, unless you happen to enjoy mutilating baby dolls and groovin’ in a cage. Why don’t you have a look right here?

So tell us, do these guys have the moves, the looks, and the sheer talent to survive the estrogen-heavy kpop scene for ’09?

G-Dragon is planning on doing his solo album activities with many songs. It seems like the next song up is ‘Breathe’, which he has revealed the music video for it already; but he is also planning on promoting ‘Boy’ and ‘Butterfly’ at the same time on shows, and radios. They are planning on shooting music videos for ‘Boy’ and ‘Butterfly too’, and ‘She’s Gone’ is one of the candidates that may be made into a music video. So, his plan is to do activities for ‘Breathe’ mostly, but also ‘Boy’, ‘Butterfly’ and ‘She’s Gone’. With many songs to do activities, this means that G-Dragon is planning on doing his solo activity promotions until the end of this year.

For most of the year Super Junior’s “Sorry Sorry” ruled atop the Hanteo album sales chart but their reign on the top has been broken by G-Dragon’s “Heartbreaker.” On September 23rd, G-Dragon’s Heartbreaker had a total sales figure of 116,270 units surpassing that of Super Junior’s Sorry Sorry, which had a total sales figure of 116,131 units.

Now this pales in comparison to the 500,000 + units that TVXQ’s Mirotic album sold last year, but this still is a pretty remarkable feat for the Heartbreaker, why? Because G-Dragon’s album was released just a little more than a month ago, while Super Junior’s album has been out since March. With all the plagiarizing issues G-Dragon’s been dealing with, this is some good news for him. Thanks to bbvipz for the tip and image.
